I'm proud of something today, and it's not for anything relating to the comic (even though I am excited about the momentum this story is starting to build). It's not even for anything remotely artistic or comic-book related. Nope. I am proud about my tiny little collection of games for my Nintendo DS. If by "collection" you mean "four of them," anyway.
I like my shoot-em-ups and brain-blasters as much as the next guy. I bang my head when I pretend to be a rock star. My heart swells when I have the choice to do good or evil and I choose good. I like swinging remote controls around like a lunatic.
None of my DS games make me do any of that. All four of my games make me think. Period. Between Brain Age, Brain Age 2, Professor Layton & The Curious Village and, my most recent acquisition, the KORG DS-10 Synthesizer, my brain has to stay sharp, think logically and mathematically, and work muscles that usually take a back seat when I'm drawing comics. I also happen to find them a lot of fun.
If only I had this stuff when I was a kid. Maybe I wouldn't have waited close to thirty years to finally learn something useful. Oh well. Better nate than lever.
That's all from me for now.
